Bio : Andrew Bartos attended Drexel University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania majoring in Architecture, and studied with Myron Barnstone at his studio in Coplay, PA. Pastel artist Jacqueline Meyerson introduced him to the medium of pastel. Andrew is an associate member of the Pastel Society of America, Lehigh Art Alliance, Bethlehem Palette Club and the Lehigh Valley Arts Council.
Andrew exhibits regularly in local and regional juried exhibitions. Several publications have included his work including the Pastel Journal, The Artists' Magazine and The Classicist. Andrew’s drawings and paintings are part of private and public collections throughout the United States and overseas. Andrew lives with his wife and some felines in Whitehall, PA. He comments that they share their home with a handful of cats whom have all served as ready subjects - "not willingly, of course, but they are a constant source of affection, scratches and inspiration. "
Subjects: "My work covers a wide variety of subjects. What most interests me are the arrangement of elements, the composition(s) they create, and the shapes that are produced when light is brought into the equation"
Style: Andrew has an eye for visually striking arrangements. His work invites viewers to observe the extraordinary elements that can be found within the context of everyday scenes.
